`make package-recursive` works without complications, but 
'package-recursive' has some minor disadvantages, e.g. it creates always 
packages of all dependencies and obviously does not take pkgtools.conf 
into account. The error itself is not a problem for me, because I know 
how to work around. Just now I discovered that defining PACKAGE_BUILDING 
might saves me from interruptions in future. It's not a real solution 
and it wasn't a real problem at all; it's just a little bit craggy.
